Important Note about prescription drugs and 'without prescription'
Uses of Retin A (Tretinoin)
Retin A (tretinoin cream) is used in the treatment of acne. Retin-A reduces the formation of
pimples and promotes quick healing of pimples that do develop. It is also used to reduce
fine facial wrinkles associated with chronic sun exposure and the natural aging process,
when used as a part of a total skin care and sun protection program.
How to Use Retin A (Tretinoin)
BEFORE APPLYING Retin A, wash the affected area with a mild soap and gently dry.
Wait 20 to 30 minutes before applying the medicine. Retin A is for use on the face
as directed, usually once a day at bedtime. Apply a pea-size amount of cream to the
clean, dry skin on the face being careful to avoid the eyes, nostrils and mouth. Cover the
affected area lightly. Wash hands after use. Do not use this more often than prescribed
or in large amounts. It will not give your faster or better results but will increase the risk
of side effects. Do not use on sunburn or eczema or other serious skin conditions.
Effects of Retin A will be gradual with most improvement seen in the first 6 months of
continued therapy. If used for acne the condition may worsen at first, then improve.
Side effects of Retin A (Tretinoin)
SIDE EFFECTS, that may go away during treatment, include redness, peeling, stinging,
or a feeling of warmth. If they continue or are bothersome, check with your doctor.
CHECK WITH YOUR DOCTOR AS SOON AS POSSIBLE if you experience blistering, crusting,
swelling, excessive redness or peeling of your skin. If you notice other effects not listed
above, contact your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist.
Precautions When Using Retin A (Tretinoin)
DO NOT GET Retin A in your eyes or on the inside of your nose or mouth.
FOR THE FIRST 2 TO 3 WEEKS OF TREATMENT, your skin condition may appear to worsen.
This is expected. Do not stop using the medicine during this time. DO NOT USE OTHER
MEDICATIONS ON YOUR SKIN without first discussing it with your doctor.
While you are using Retin A, you may use cosmetics. After using cosmetics, thoroughly
wash and dry the affected area before applying Retin A. Retin A MAY CAUSE increased
sensitivity to the sun. Avoid exposure to the sun, sunlamps, or tanning booths until
you know how you react to Retin A. Use a sunscreen if you must be outside.
Do not apply Retin A to sunburned skin. FOR WOMEN: IT IS UNKNOWN IF Retin A IS
EXCRETED in breast milk. IF YOU ARE OR WILL BE BREAST-FEEDING while you are using
Retin A, check with your doctor or pharmacist to discuss the risks to your baby.
Tell your doctor of any nonprescription or prescription medication you may take including
isotretinoin, amiodarone, tetracycline or quinolone antibiotics, sulfa-drugs or
phenothiazines as they increase skin sensitivity to the sun. Inform your doctor if you are
taking minoxidil or any skin medications, soaps, cleansers, cosmetics, astringents or other
facial products that may be drying or irritating (e.g., alcohol-containing facial products).
Benzoyl peroxide should not be applied at the same time as Retin A.
